LXer: Vista Ultimate vs. Ubuntu 7.04 Which Install Is Easier?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 15, 2007
Published at LXer:
This weekend I suffered a meltdown of my workstation’s main hard drive. The drive help my Windows Vista Ultimate install, which in turn held several hundred pictures, music files, movies etc. Circuit City had a great deal on drives, so a quick car trip landed me a brand new 500GB Seagate drive for $109.99. After popping the drive into the machine, I gathered up my respective DVD’s and set off to rebuild the beast. Only this time, Vista was going to have company - and maybe competition. This time, Ubuntu 7.04 was getting an equal share of the drive. It is time to really see which one is easier to install.

CentOS, Fedora, or Ubuntu for server. Which is best?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2008
The title sums it up. And, posting this on an Ubuntu forum, I know beforehand that the answers might be a little biased.
But the gist of it is that I may soon need to set up and periodically administer a box that will be used for subversion, among other things. I've been using Ubuntu since Feisty on might desktop and have loved it overall. My first instinct is to go ahead and load Hardy LTS on the new server, but then again Fedora seems to be the go-to distro for servers.
I realize that Canonical is working hard to make Ubuntu a server household name in its own right with some already evident success, but I know Fedora supposedly has a history of being a strong server platform, and nearly every server I've seen in the past is usually running some form of Red Hat-inspired software.
Come to think of it, I had forgotten about CentOS. How does that stack up?
I haven't really administered a server of any kind before, so I'd appreciate honest assessments of each distr
Advice with installation Ubuntu Vs Redhat Vs Fedora?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 26, 2011
I have a server at godaddy on Red Hat Fedora Core 8 and I want to set up a home server for development and backups for the live server.
The server i bought for home use is set up for RAID usage. I want the server to mirror the harddrives so whatever i do on one is saved on the other too. There was a step in the setup where it asks to partition the drives It asks if I want to LVM the drives with or without encryption or just partition the whole thing.
Realistically the ultimate goal of my home server is to have 2 or 3 people working from their macs and code on the server so we can test how the live server would react without uploading it to the live server. We will use version tracker.
Anyone have any advice or instructions on how to install? And whether or not I have to buy the Red Hat license or according to info provided I should use the Fedora project version?
Cost of support for RedHat Desktop 5 vs Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 7, 2008
I'm going to download an evaluaiton version of RedHat 5 Desktop. I see the yearly subscription for RedHat Desktop 5 is US$80.
I see that Desktop support from Canonical is US$293.76 for one year (9 to 5) or US$1,057.50 (24/7).
I live in Australia. Does the RedHat cost of US$80 per year offer the same value of support compared to Canonical or do they have some support ticket programme that could mean RedHat support could wind up being more expensive than support from Canonical?
I'm asking because I want to buy a new confusor this year. I was thinking of buying a Mac (and put Ubuntu on that as well as the Mac OS plus Windows) but I'm mindufl of the price difference between PCs and Macs.
I'm a Web Developer. The Mac would be ideal for me but it's more affordable for me to have a PC with Linux (for development and general use) and Windows (for compatibility testing) on it.
I've been using Kubuntu 7.04 as my main OS but as I've got a list of clients now I'm thinking I s

First off, I'm by and large a full-time Ubuntu user. However, I'm also one of their most vocal critics for becoming so detached from their core market as well. In response, I have used both operating systems and it has been interesting to see how each deals with the issue of usability for the casual user.

While recent testing has shown how Ubuntu 12.04 LTS KVM/Xen/VirtualBox virtualization compares between Intel's Sandy Bridge and AMD's Bulldozer platforms, in this article is a different look at the KVM virtualization performance of the forthcoming Ubuntu 12.04 LTS operating system. In this review is a look at the KVM virtualization performance of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS compared to the earlier Ubuntu 10.04.4 and Ubuntu 8.04.4 Long-Term Support releases.
Which version of Ubuntu / Lubuntu would be best? (newbie linux user)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 19, 2013
I have an old windows xp laptop that i want to try out Linux on - the laptops main roles will be watching mpeg vids, listening to mp3s and web surfing, with some occasional light office use - the machine itself is a dual core pentium Lenovo laptop, with one gig of RAM - I've tried a couple of live cds out on my Windows 7 laptop - Ubuntu 13.04 and Lubuntu 12.04.03 lxle - on the newer laptop they both work easily well - my question is....... are the specs of the older machine good enough to run Ubuntu?..... or, should I go for the Lubuntu lxle which advertises itself as suitable for older machines?.... or is there another variant of ubuntu which would fit the bill better?
Which Linux for KVM virtualization host
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2012
Can anyone advise me which particular Linux distribution is most suited to acting as a KVM virtualization host. Last time I experimented with this was over two years ago so I guess things have changed a bit since then.
This will be on my main development/test workstation and will therefore be hosting various Windows and Linux virtualized partitions on the same physical machine as the KVM server host. About the only unusual requirement I have is to be able to use an nVidia dual-screen setup within the virtualized operating systems.
I have just created a test server using Microsoft Hyper-V and discovered the following items do not work as hoped for:
Dual screen - no support for this via Hyper-V
Audio - no audio except a half workaround using remote desktop
USB - no USB passthrough
SCSI tape streamer - no SCSI passthrough so no way of using SCSI connected tape drives from any of the virtual operating systems
As for which brand of Linux these are my though
